Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Ive tried things to deter him from the spots he likes and also tried 2 litter boxes instead of just one. He is healthy and fixed. The other cat is a male as well if the makes any difference.

    Is he de-clawed? De-clawed cats have very sensitive paws and some litter brands can hurt! Some cats, de-clawed or not, dislike the feel of certain litter brands. Have you tried changing litter brands? Regardless, make sure you use a cleaner with enzymes specifically designed to eliminate urine and fecal odors, or else kitty will keep going back to the same spots because he can still smell the piddle and/or poo, even if humans can't see or smell it. Good luck to you!
